OUR FOUMDATIOM

C3INCE the world's beginning, man's existence was made possible by the 
basic fundamentals of food and shelter. 

Even in the infancy of its existence, however, clothing has been one 
of its chief problems. 

The New Bedford Textile School has for its basic purpose, the train- 
ing of men possessing proficiency in making and supplying this necessary 
commodity.

HISTORT OF THE SCHOOL 



Ti 



HE New Bedford Textile School was established by the trustees and 
incorporated in accordance with Chapter 475, Acts of 1895. The school 
opened for day students in October 1899. The first year, enrollment was 
11 day students and 183 evening students. The first building was 64 by 
100 feet, three stories high with an annex of 12 by 67 feet for the engine 
addition, the Mechanical, Chemistry and Designing departments were 
added to the curriculum. In 1905, due to the increase in the enrollment, 
an addition carrying the building to the Maxfield Street line was built. 
The third addition was put up in 1911 on the north side of the original 
building. These two were connected by a tunnel and a bridge. In this 
addition, the Mechanical, Chemistry and Designing departments were 
established. Another expansion was necessitated in 1922 and the Max- 
field Street building was extended west to the line of the original building. 
In this addition, the C. Y. P. and weaving departments were extended. 
On the third floor, a fine gymnasium was built. 

At present, the school is one of the most sanitary, ample, and effi- 
cient textile schools in the country. The present building contains 100,000 
square feet of floor space and over $275,000 worth of equipment.

CtASS HISTOJRT 



T: 



IME marches on. The last three years have passed quickly indeed. 
Now the parting of the ways has been reached. It will be hard to break 
up the old gang but it must be done because the boys have finished their 
studies and must be off on the quest for fame and fortune — mostly the 
latter ! 

It was in September 1933 that we first got together determined to 
learn something of the Textile game. The first thing that we learned was 
to leave a deposit at the office, and then each instructor nonchalantly pro- 
ceeded to give instructions on how to leave some more. We soon settled 
down to our studies (except when there was a crap game going on in 
the lab) and our vocabularies improved tremendously. We learned of 
such phrases as "according-ly" and "long irun ook". 

Fraternity bids and initiations held the spotlight for the next few 
weeks. The pledged members were put through their paces daily and at 
the final initiation there was a hot time in the old town that night. 
Strange to say, there were no fatalities. 

Election time came around and a very capable slate of officers was 
chosen as follows: President, Andrew Adams; vice president, David 
Aulisio; secretary, Ruth Dutton ; treasurer, Charles Sherman. 

Our class was well represented in sports that year. The soccer pitch 
found D. Aulisio, Szulik, Leahy and Pelczarski kicking the ball around 
for dear old Textile. 

On the basketball court we saw Szulik, D. Aulisio, Flynn, Durfee and 
Greenough dropping the ball in regularly. 

Our representatives on the diamond were Flynn, Barry, Leahy, D. 
Aulisio, Greenough and Pelczarski. 

There being many good dancers in our class and the desire to have a 
treasury, elaborate preparations were made for the Freshman dance. It 
was pronounced a staggering success by everybody due to hearty co-opera- 
tion from the fellows. 

The class was learning rapidly and towards spring we knew how to 
make the weave room look like a junk yard and how to shoot very accur- 
ately with a rubber tube. In the lab there were many budding "Dilling- 
ers". 

Final exam time rolled around with its many headaches but most 
everyone managed to get by thus ending the first year at Textile. It sure 
made one feel good to know that you had ten weeks' vacation in front of 
you. 

The following September most of the boys returned to go on with 
their studies. Old acquaintances were renewed and soon everyone was 
back in the old routine. But there was one person we missed — Mr.

Smith. The duties of principal were now to be handled by Mr. Handford 
and we soon got acquainted and liked him very much. 

In this second year, there was less fooling and horsing around. The 
class seemed to realize that they had come for the education and not to 
waste their time. 

The class held another election and those who placed in the money 
were : President, Dave Aulisio ; vice president, Bill Leahy ; secretary, Carl 
Hardy; treasurer, Charlie Sherman. 

In mid-winter the class promoted another dance. Due to the spirits 
of the committee and most of the boys, this dance was a success and 
netted some welcome cash. 

Mid-year exams came and passed. They did not create the furror as 
in the first year because by this time everyone was more or less used to 
exams and more exams. 

Came spring and the young men's minds (with Mr. Gourley's help) 
lightly turned to thoughts of baseball. We had a whale of a team as 
usual. 

At this time a few trips to various textile manufacturing concerns 
were arranged. They proved to be very interesting and we picked up much 
valuable information. Time was beginning to slip by rapidly now and 
before we knew it June was upon us again and we once more broke up for 
the Summer recess. 

In the Fall we returned to school and started on the last lap. This 
was an extremely busy year with our thesis to do and finishing up odds 
and ends and concentrating on that branch we would like to make our 
life work in the field of Textiles. 

Our class officers for this important year were : president, Dave 
Aulisio; vice president, Laurence Durfee; secretary, Bill Leahy; treasur- 
er, Francis McMullen. 

There were many committees chosen to handle such matters as "The 
Fabricator", class rings, and the social events of the class. The Senior 
Dance Committee was composed of: Adams, Krumbholz, Begin, Szulik, 
Soucy, and Ruff ley. Those serving on the Prom Committee were : Barry, 
Krumbholz, Hardy, Flynn, Turner, and Kestenbaum. Everybody worked 
hard and did their job well and everything the class undertook turned 
out well. 

With Commencement came the end of our stay at Textile. We will 
always be able to look back on these years with pleasant thoughts. To 
the School and to the instructors we wish to express our hearty and sin- 
cere appreciation for all they have done for us. Each member of the 
class, I am sure, wishes his fellow classmates a highly successful career.

PROPHECT 



T was cold that night in New York, and there I was alone and with- 
out a friend in the "Big City". I spied a neon sign that flashed the mes- 
sage "Hardy's Bar". My heart quickened. Could it be possible. I rushed 
through the door and sure enough there' was Carl dishing it out. 

"Hello, you old son of a gun", I yelled. 

"Well if it isn't Beck", said Carl. "Stick around awhile". He called 
for his partners, Barry and Soucy, who were out back, making pretzels. 
We got together and proceeded to talk over old times — in between beers. 

"Seen any of the gang?" I inquired. 

"Flynn and McMullen stopped in last week on their way back up 
north. They made a fortune selling clip spot overcoats to the Eskimos". 
"Don't tell me those two know how to make lenos". 

"No", said Carl, "the stuff is designed by Begin & Deptula Inc. 
which makes it bad enough but when Durfee gets through bleaching it 
the goods are not much good for anything else but sale to the Eskimoes." 

"Well", I said, "I've got to be moving. I am going to Russia to in- 
vestigate a crop of harness reeds which my company grows over there. 
Szulik is in charge but is having trouble keeping up production. They 
grow in swampy places but the Soviets are draining all the marshes so 
we think we will turn to doup twine which does well in filled in swamps." 

My boat was leaving in ten minutes so I left the bar and started for 
the docks. As I was walking down the street a voice piped up and said, 
"Want to buy some candy, mister?" I turned and there was Parkins 
with his ever present box of candy. 

When he saw me he said, "Oh it's you. Wait a minute." Then he 
pulled out a little green book and said, "You owe me twenty cents from 
fifteen years ago." 

I paid him and asked him what he knew. 

"All I know is that Kestenbaum and I are having a tough time try- 
ing to collect from you birds. I hired Kesty to help and give him 2% 
commission. If he collects all the debts he'll be in the dough for the rest 
of his life and I won't have to work either." I just gave him a queer 
look and hurried aboard my boat. 

The first person 1 ran into was Pilkington. "What are you doing 
here?" I asked. 

"I'm head lunchman and chief dish washer", he replied. "It's a 
darn good job. Brindley, the mess boy, does most of the work. There's 
plenty of women on the boat and I've got a girl in every port". He told 
me that Parkinson was the Pilot and Colwell the engineer and between

them and the Captain, who was Carroll, there was no telling where the 
boat was going and when you were going to get there. 

It took us ten weeks to cross the Atlantic and that according to Car- 
roll was fast time for his boat because Colwell had lost his steam sheets 
and had a tough time keeping the boilers going. It means that Ruffley 
and Lacerda would go on strike every once in a while for more liquor and 
refuse to fire the boilers. 

We then steamed into the Mediterranean and along the coast of 
Africa. Soon we sighted a row boat flying a distress signal. They were 
picked up and turned out to be Aulisio and Leahy. It seemed that Dave 
was cornered by Mussolini and sent to Ethiopia to do his part. Leahy, 
as a soldier of fortune for Ethiopia, met Dave on the battlefield and 
they shook hands, deserted the army and started for home. They were 
figuring on paddling across the Atlantic when we picked them up. 

About a month later, I got to Russia and there I found Harrison 
working in the lab. Szulik told me he wanted a Russian chemist but 
couldn't find one and as Harrison wes the next best thing he hired him. 

I asked him how the business was and he said they sold all their 
products to Rothkopf and Lipsitt, who had started up a mill in Palestine. 

That night I went down to the village dine and dance establishment 
and there was Krumbholz and his band. Mitchell was trying his best 
to do the vocals and was doing a wicked job. Over at one of the tables 
sat Greenough. He said that he was over here to cover the Olympics for 
the "Fairhaven Star". I asked him for some news from home and he had 
bad news. It seems that Andy Adams was trying to invent a loom to 
weave cloth without any warp and it finally drove him nuts and they 
locked him up. 

"How about Goodell and Rioux?" I asked. 

''Well", he said, "the last I heard Rioux was official taster in a brew- 
ery and Goodell was still trying to go up in the world by running the ele- 
vator in the Empire State building. 

With my business finished I now had a yearning to get home. Green- 
ough told me that Giguere and Turner were starting on a non-stop flight 
from Russia to the United States and so I got in touch with Turner and 
he agreed to take me along. We started the next morning and about half 
way across the ocean Giguere went to sleep at the controls and the plane 
went into a tail spin and hit the water. The next thing that I remem- 
bered somebody was hauling me out of the dye jig and saying the edge 
of the jig was a H of a place to go to sleep.

FMSHMAM CHJGMI* 

T^L GROUP of utterly imbecilic, incompetent, and frivolous youngsters, 
as there now exists in the form of a Freshman chemistry class, has never 
before been seen or heard. A nightmare, the whole day through, these 
potential chemists go about their work with a free abandonness that does 
not guarantee the success of any experiment. Each member of the class 
has his peculiarities; in fact some are so outstanding that they have be- 
come the class pets. 

Many of the practical (?) jokes thus far have been aimed at Ed 
Hudecek and Arnold Aspden. If ever a man showed complete disgust 
with life in general, it was the time Eddie opened his locker and found 
it overflowing with methylene blue. The unknown solution that Arnold 
was analyzing seemed to become contaminated in some mysterious man- 
ner, and remained an unknown. 

Izzmirian makes a darn good substitute for a radio in the lab. 
(Especially the static). He shows enthusiasm by saying "It's a parodic- 
tal amphoterical rex". We wonder if he's speaking Armenian. He now 
sings a tune composed of all the dyes on the shelf. His partner in crime, 
Nat Stetson, seems to be getting queerer all the time. He likes to sneak 
up on people and say "Boo". Some of Nat's puns would arouse Ed Wynn.

We wonder what it is about hydrogen sulphide that ''Bull" Curry 
seems to find so enjoyable. He makes it at every opportunity, and seems 
to thrive on it. The trouble with him is that he thinks everyone else en- 
joys it, so he never makes it in the hood. Did you know that "Bull" is 
the class slicker? He gets to school at about 8:00 and combs his hair 
till about 8:20. 

If you want to know anything about the next war, just ask "Major" 
Smith. He'll talk you deaf and dumb. Another of his favorite topics is 
"the physiological and cerebral development of the aboriginal species ac- 
cording to the Darwinian theory of evolution". Warning: Don't ever 
mention these subjects to Sid, or you're in for a three hour lecture. 

The biggest surprise of the year was the sudden elimination of pro- 
fanity in the lab. This was due to the formation of the "Sweet-Breath 
Club", featuring Jack Ryan, Walker, Gagnon, and Arnold Ramalho. 
There were plenty of sore arms at first, but they're pretty careful now. 

Gagnon would make a better circus barker than P. T. Barnum. And 
when he starts pointing out the merits of "The National Union for Social 
Justice", don't linger on. 

That walking dictionary, Bob Golub, has a very peculiar manner of 
asking for a cigarette. He says: "Would I be tresspassing on your in- 
dulgence or assuming too great an obligation if I were to request you to 
accommodate me with a cylindrical sheet of cellulose containing unoxi- 
dized tobacco?" He says it always works. 

"Dead-Pan" Benny Howe can show you the most beautiful photos of 
murder scenes and fatal auto accidents you ever saw. He's always on the 
spot with his camera trying to prove that the "other fellow" should not 
collect the insurance. 

Herk Miller would not be out of place in a medicine show with his 
"Looka here, looka here, looka here!" He actually chiselled three drops 
of reagent from Nat Stetson, which proves that he will be successful. 

Harry Avila usually comes sauntering into school at about 9 o'clock. 
He tries to thumb a ride over the bridge until a quarter to nine, and then 
he starts to exert his pedal extremities. We believe he exchanges greet- 
ings with a few Fairhaven High School acquaintances! 

If you're looking for a chemical in the first year lab, and no one 
knows where it is, ask Bill Crookes in a polite manner, and he may give 
you a few molecules. Bill seems to be competing with the stock room. 

Leo Winiarski got a taste of spring showers a bit too prematurely 
the time one member of the class filled up a piece of rubber tubing with 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 

Page twenty-nine 



THE FABR IC ATOR 



1936 



water and allowed it to contract violently in his face. It's a shame the 
soap wasn't handy or the job would have been complete. 

And while on the subject of H 2 0, we're not even aware of Fran 
Walsh's presence in the class, 'till he and his partner, Charlie Blossom, 
get down to work putting out imaginary fires with their rubber tubing 
attached to the hydrant. But they usually get the worst end of it when 
the better half (Hudecek is always in the lead because fools rush in 
where wise men fear to tread) uses the resources at its command and 
lowers the water pressure. 

Tom Barry took advantage of his surroundings by bringing his 
skates in every other day to be sharpened. This seems to indicate that 
he had a very successful skating and wolfing season. 

Considered from all angles, the first year chemistry class has proven 
its true worth. It has furnished two star basketball players, Ryan and 
Winiarski, has several outstanding students to answer the roll, and we 
believe that there are many more who could be outstanding. 

We'll see.

FRESHMAN GENERAL 

Gentle Reader: 

Obviously you will venture into this little episode of the idiosyncrasies 
or eccentricities of the "greenhorns of the Textile institution as just an- 
other page in the Fabricator. But mind you, the fruit of the future in 
that career of the shuttle and spindle lies here in this group of young 
men and women. 

"Water well the seed of youth with education because from it will 
spring the man of tomorrow." The advice of this ancient Chinese pro- 
verb is just as sound and practical today as it was when first conceived 
many years ago. The ones who eventually win their way to the top in 
any field of endeavor are those who know a little more about their work 
than the average and consequently can do it a little better. 

A. L. 

JUST A SENTENCE OR TWO— 

Dexter Horvitz : Selling is better than making, as long as it's cloth. 
When asked the formula of success, Dec answers, "Study, study, and 
again I say study." 

Madeline Robinson : Detests the name of Tuffy, and talks to Russ 
Carroll too much. Madeline's ambition is to be someone's secretary, but 
first she must be delivered from the horrors of the gears and pulleys of 
C. Y. P.

THE FABRICATOR 1936 



Robert Potter: Tall and handsome and debonair. Writes his notes 
in shorthand, and can't decipher them. Bob's motto seems to be "God 
helps those who help themselves." Before we knew we were much per- 
plexed as to where the looms were going. 

John Misiasek: A husky brute. Was once a six footer, but has 
shrunk. (Too much swimming, but not in water.) It is said of many a 
student that he appears in class in body but not in mind. Missie's case 
seems lacking both materially and spiritually. 

George Kovar: Should get together with DuPont. He'd tell them a 
thing or two. Tarzan believes everyone should have a sense of humor. 
We must say that George is thoughtful enough to tell us when to laugh. 

Russell Vanni : Didn't use Kremel hair tonic. Knows the best jokes 
and women. Believes all work and no play makes Buck a dull boy, so 
he bought a car. And it runs, too ! 

Albert Louie: Says he doesn't study. Will bet anybody, anything. 
There's no place like Seattle to Al and if we don't look out he'll have 
us believing it. 

John Gaughan: Likes Fall River. Lays it kind of thick sometimes, 
but doesn't mean any harm. John's right at home here at Textile being 
brought up in a textile atmosphere. He knows just the places to sneak 
off to for a snooze. Under the cards for instance. 

Henry Vien : Doesn't say much, doesn't do much, but tries awfully 
hard. Hank never missed a basketball game. .He read of them all in 
the papers. "It's twenty-three cents saved," says he. 

Alice Smith : Is learning the ropes. Has a cute smile and is very 
quiet to the boys. A bit of femininity that dropped in to find out just 
what the word, Textile, means. 

Christopher Best : Persons say he doesn't indulge in bottled bond, 
but we know better. Likes chocolate cake, if that means anything! 
Breezes around, and now and then startles the class to the consciousness 
of his presence by a brilliant idea. 

And still the world goes "round and round" !

C3TEP up folks! It's the greatest show on earth and the admission is 
free. See the finest gathering of reg'lar fellows ever assembled. Follow 
the guide and keep your eyes open for there's something every minute. 

See that fellow rushing about, carefully holding a laden watchglass 
in each hand? Keep out of his path or else he'll warn you, "One side, 
please, this is a quantitative experiment . . . Yes, that's Edgar "Quanti- 
tative" Gundersen, two jumps ahead of himself. He finds his footprints 
ahead of him and he doesn't walk backwards either. When he finds a 
moment to spare he argues in opposition to Gordon Simmons who insists 
that any job less than $5,000 per annum isn't even worth considering. 
Gordon would never take a position as president of a firm because there is 
no chance for advancement . . . Gordon, Allen Frost, and Russell Armi- 
tage — "the three West-enders" — should have the school moved up there. 
Then maybe they wouldn't be late so often. Too bad they don't have a 
bridge to cross, then they could use one good excuse always instead of 
giving those like the one about waiting in the wrong drug store . . . Did 
you ever see a rainbow walking? Take a look at Milton (Marny) Horvitz, 
Charles (Bud) Riley, Walt Mitchell, and Leo Kenny walking together.

They took Mr. Holt's color lectures too seriously and dyed their lab coats 
red, yellow, blue, and green, respectively . . . And Bud Riley deserves 
some kind of credit for making the smallest wash-bottle in captivity. It 
was a work of art that would put any glassblower to shame . . . That in- 
dustrious individual over there is identified by the sign on his lab coat. 
He is Edmund (Yud) Levine of the Horvine Chemical Corp. His con- 
tribution to the class is any sound effect desired, from a locomotive to a 
canary with a sore throat . . . The "Horvine Chemical Corp." is a mythi- 
cal firm formed by the union of Horvitz and Levine. According to them, 
Horvine sets the pace for Dupont . . .The Bright-haired boy in the cor- 
ner is none other than Harry Wilcock who modestly claims that when 
better experiments are performed he'll do the performing. At the pres- 
ent time he says that his work is being taken as a standard . . . And 
Norman Singleton is the lad loved by all — he's the fellow who sells us 
candy on a money back guarantee. Only he never refunds any money 
because he sells on credit — for which we love him all the more . . . Some 
sort of medal should be awarded to Elbert Tripp for attaining the heights 
in assiduous effort. Either he loves to work or hates to play, for when 
he finds a moment of leisure, he does more work. That's one way to 
get somewhere . . . Middleboro's representative is the cute little fellow 
with the blonde wavy hair, Harold Williams, Harold is a "Gentleman of 
the Press". That's why his pants are always well creased . . . Tech's 
basketball team, known as a "powerful aggregation" would probably be 
just an "aggregation" without Joe Aulisio and Alan Ramsbotham, ath- 
letes par excellence . . . Let's stop a while and watch Harold "Mike" 
Riley. Without him the class would be forced to hire a jester for he's 
always bubbling over with some mirth-provoking antic. But Mike has 
a lot of common sense beneath the surface. Class presidents are elected 
on their merit and Mike's been our president twice ... A typical exam- 
ple of the reg'lar fellow mentioned at the outset, is Tommy Dwyer. He 
works conscientiously but manages to squeeze in a few frolicsome mo- 
ments . . . We're coming to the end of the show, folks; he's last, but he's 
not least, neither in stature nor in character. Besides finding time for 
studying, Kenny Chase manages to get in a lot of skating and skiing. 
And right now his craving is to travel. — A man of the world ! . . . Dur- 
ing our tour you probably learned that the current expression is "You 
scab !" This is the admonition that reaches our ears when we accomplish 
a trifle more than the next fellow. 

Well, you've seen them all. We know that you've enjoyed them, so 
we'll let you put them together and what do you get: the grandest class 
there ever was — the chemistry class of 1936.

HIS is the Ballyhoo station of Textile broadcasting for the Second 
Year General Class. At the regular meeting of the Old Ladies Club, of- 
ficers were elected for the coming year; Elmer "Tarzan" Diggle, Pres. ; 
Harold "Bar-Fly" McCormick, Vice-Pres. ; Mark "Farmer" Knowlton, 
Secretary; and Cameron "Cowboy" Baker, Treas. 

A wonderful talk on crocheting was given by "Tarzan". He showed 
the members some fine knitting that was done by himself during the 
past winter. Games such as Whist, Old Maid, and Donkey, were played 
for the remainder of the evening. During the course of the games, some 
of the members began to gab and knit. "Tarzan" said he was learning a 
new stroke in knitting. He also said that he didn't have much time to 
attend club meetings because he played bridge at Mr. Richardson's home. 
"Bar-Fly" at that time interrupted and ordered two beers. He said that 
much of his time was spent at the "Moose Head". The floor shows were 
getting better. "Candy Mart" Kovar (who is janitor at the Old Ladies 
Club) fell over himself while carrying in the two beers for "Bar-Fly". 
"Candy-Mart" said he stayed home so much studying, that he forgot how 
to walk. Just at that moment clinking of bottles was heard in the entry.

The door was opened and there was "Milkman" Smith putting - milk on 
the floor. He was called in and he soon began to brag how good he could 
milk the cows. This brought about an argument between "Farmer" 
Knowlton and himself. They quickly left for "Farmer's" shed to prove 
who was the best. "Cowboy" sent a telegram saying that he could not 
attend because he had a date with a blonde in front of the library. "Ka- 
saar" Kozera, (one of the Ka-see and Ka-saar boys) was having a hot 
argument with "Benny" Slom. "Ka-saar" was trying to convince "Ben- 
ny" that the Whale was a better place to buy goods than Slom's Delica- 
tessen, and that the Westinghouse A. C. had a better basketball team 
than the Kadimahs. "Ka-see" at this point ended the evening by saying 
that the A&P where he worked was the best place to trade, and that Tex- 
tile had the best team of them all.

start off the year Beta Chapter opened a new and larger Frater- 
nity House which is situated a block from the school. This is very con- 
venient for the brothers to use as recreational rooms. 

At the end of "Rush Week" we had several new candidates, namely, 
Arnold Aspden, Albert Louie, John J. Misiasek, John Gaughan, Jr., 
Christopher Best, Jr., Sidney Smith, and Joseph Dias. 

The candidates were given their degrees at the frat house. The third 
degree was given jointly with chapters from Lowell Textile and Durfee 
Textile at the Hotel Bradford in Boston. This occasion will long be re- 
membered by all who attended. 

Beta Chapter sponsored an "Alumni Nite" which was attended by a 
very large gathering of Alumni men. 

Phi Psi as usual was very well represented in athletics. The bas- 
ketball team was ably aided by David Aulisio and Stanley Koczera. The 
baseball team was helped by Bill Leahy, Eddie Flynn, Dave Aulisio, Nor- 
man Singleton, and John Misiasek. In tennis Carl Hardy, Allan Frost, 
Arnold Aspden, and John Misiasek. The soccer team's mainstays were 
Dave Aulisio, Bill Leahy, Buck Singleton, Stan Koczera, and Joe Dias. 

To our brothers and to the other departing graduates, we wish you 
the greatest of success in all your endeavors.

2 <! % L FTER an enjoyable summer vacation the members of Delta Chap- 
ter again rejoined forces to begin another school year. 

The first social of the year was the annual dinner and smoker held 
at the summer home of Brother Joseph Norris at Padanaram. At this 
dinner the new candidates met the alumni members and instructors. The 
evening was enjoyed by all present. 

Two weeks later the twelve candidates began to wonder whether or 
not they should have pledged themselves when the yearly street initiation 
with its usual antics was held. On Friday night of this week the first 
degree was conferred upon the candidates at the summer home of Brother 
Begin. This evening practically all of the active and alumni members 
were present much to the discomfort of the new men. Nevertheless all 
were able to walk home unassisted after the ceremony was over. Two 
weeks later the second and third degrees were given to the new mem- 
bers at a regular meeting. 

This year Delta Chapter was fortunate enough to be able to welccme 
into its midst one of the newer additions to our school faculty, Mr. John 
E. Foster of the Mechanical Department. 

The activities of Delta Chapter this year included a party held at 
Brother Begin's summer home and a dance held at Cornell Hall. Plans 
are now under way for our final farewell dinner and party. 

This year Delta Chapter was represented at sports by Winiarski, 
Ryan, and Barry at basketball and Mello and Soucy at Soccer. 

This year Delta Chapter will lose three members at graduation. To 
these members we offer our heartiest congratulations and thank them for 
their help in maintaining the ideals of Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity.

HE purpose of any fraternity is to serve as a binding link in the 
social life of young men at school ; and if it is the least that can be said, 
we are proud to state that Beta is serving the purpose of Sigma Phi Tau. 
While our membership is limited, it is substantially larger than in those 
of past years and it is to this fact that the success of our past year is due. 
A spirit prevails amongst the fraters that is truly fraternal and makes 
Beta Chapter a practical example of the saying "In Union There Is 
Strength". 

The social activity of the chapter commenced on the evening of Octo- 
ber 16, 1935 when Beta sponsored its annual smoker at the New Bedford 
Hotel. Of the invited guests present, three were pledged at a later date. 
At the close of the pledge period the neophytes were formally inducted in- 
to the fraternity at the induction banquet at the "Eagle" in Fall River. 
The new members acquired the manners of the organization rapidly and 
have proven valuable additions. 

In March, Beta ran the second of its annual dinner dances. This 
was a scintillating affair, well attended in the Foyer and Aladdin Room 
of the New Bedford Hotel. The event was made more enjoyable by the 
presence of three fraters from Alpha Chapter. This year an innovation 
was introduced in that the annual convention, instead of being held in 
New York, was held in Providence. This took place on April 25 and the 
arrangement enabled many members from this section to attend. 

This June, Beta loses two active members by graduation, Hyman 
Rothkopf and Leon Lipsitt. Those who remain behind to carry on wish 
to convey their richest sentiments to these two who have completed a 
milestone in their career ; and it is likewise that they leave their heartiest 
feelings for continued success. As they, and the rest of their classmates, 
leave the old trail and set out upon the new, may they always remember 
that: "Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain but 
what we do".

A TRIBUTE) TO THE ATHM&TES 

.BEFORE we begin with the resume of the SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS of 
the past year, we would like to say a few words about the athletes of our 
school and particularly of our class who have done much in the last three 
years to further the name of the New Bedford Textile School. 

Through many hours of diligent practice and painstaking effort 
these boys have given us athletic teams that have risen from the position 
of mediocrity to one which is well known to local sports followers. They 
have combined TEAMWORK, ABILITY, with the WILL to win fairly 
and squarely no matter how rough the going, to build the teams of which 
they have a right to be proud. 

We are especially proud of the athletes of our own class who, we 
might say, seemed to have started this parade of high calibered aggrega- 
tions. That was in 1934, our first year in school. At this time six mem- 
bers of the class formed the backbone of perhaps the best baseball team 
in the history of the school. The team was undefeated and averaged 
slightly more than ten runs per game which is proof in itself of consider- 
able power and ability. We were well represented on this year's hoop 
team which after compiling an exceptionally fine seasonal record went 
on to become runners up in the Inter City Tournament. And lastly, six 
members of the class were players on the 1935 soccer team which gar- 
nered one of the best records made by a New Bedford Textile School 
eleven in recent seasons.

Textile vs. Alumni 

With thirteen consecutive victories, counting the two preceding 
years, to their credit the Millmen ran the win streak to fourteen by de- 
feating the Grads in the usual opening game for the school team by the 
score of 10-9. 

Going into the last inning on the small end of a 9-8 score, the school 
team put on a spirited rally, interspersed with some hilarious base run- 
ning, to score two runs and win the game. Bucky Greenough capped the 
uprising when with two outs he "Frank Merriwelled" a long triple to 
center field, driving home Frankie Szynal with the winning run. 

Textile vs. Holy Family 

It was another easy win for the Millmen, by a 12-4 score over the 
Parochials. Textile made twelve hits, Szynal getting a home run and two

singles and D. Aulisio, Simmons, Lewis, and Greenough hitting doubles. 
Lewis held the High School lads to six and struck out the same number. 

Textile vs. Durfee Tech. 

It was sixteen wins and no losses as the New Bedford team demon- 
strated its superiority with a 4-1 win. Playing in heavy rain, Durfee 
led up to the last of the fifth when Lewis doubled and Durfee walked. 
Jasionek then doubled Lewis home with the tying run. Greenough's sac- 
rifice and infield outs by Lewis and Szynal after singles by Riley and 
Aulisio scored two more runs in the sixth to sew up the game. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

The Millmen hit heavily, registering thirteen safe blows including a 
double by Aulisio and a triple by Szynal to trounce the Vokes 16-2. Dick 
Lewis held the Green to four scattered blows and fanned twelve for his 
fourth straight triumph of the season. 

Textile vs. Becker College 

The Millmen's eighteen-game win streak was brought to an abrupt 
ending by the classy College nine. The final score was 14-4. Textile 
led briefly in the third inning when Greenough singled following Barry's 
single and Aulisio's double to score two runs. Becker scored seven runs 
in the fourth to stop all threats. The absence of Lewis and Jasionek's in- 
ability to play more than two innings coupled by terrible infielding on 
Textile's part didn't tend to help. 

Textile vs. Holy Family 

Holy Family humbled Textile, for the second straight game, in a ten 
inning battle which saw Carter pitching great ball for the younger boys. 
The Millmen went ahead in the first of the tenth by 2-1 but the high 
school boys reached Jasionek for two runs in the last half of that same 
inning to win. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

Textile again soundly trounced the trade school lads, this time by a 
10-3 score. While Ralph Clark was holding the opposition to five hits 
his team-mates batted out twelve healthy singles, Al Ramsbotham getting 
three to lead the offensive. Dave and Joe Aulisio both got a single and 
a double to trail Ramsbotham.

Textile vs. Wentworth Institute 

In the usual close game held by these rivals Textile triumphed 3-2, 
breaking a 1-1 deadlock in the eighth with a two run rally without making 
a solitary hit. Wentworth made three hits off Lewis while Textile could 
register but two singles off Vargnani. Hannah, Boston catcher, and 
Greenough made the only solid hits of the day with the latter plus Dur- 
fee and D. Aulisio doing the scoring for Textile. 

Textile vs. Durfee Tech. 

Although out-hitting their opponents 13-6 New Bedford lost its third 
game of the season to the score of 7-6. Despite Jasionek's homer and 
single, Ramsbotham's double and two singles, and Dave Aulisio's three 
singles, to mention only half the hits made by the Millmen, Durfee edged 
out a win with the aid of some fine breaks on close decisions on the 
bases against the New Bedford runners. Cullen led Durfee with three 
hits and Dick Lewis was charged with his only loss of the year. 

Textile vs. Wentworth Institute 

The Millmen traveled to Boston and trimmed Wentworth for the 
second time in probably the wierdest game of the schedule. Trailing by 
four runs at one time and having to stage an uphill battle Textile 
climaxed some terrific hitting by scoring ten runs in the sixth, seventh, 
and eighth innings (five in the eighth) to a win by a 14-8 margin. The 
Tex lads made sixteen hits including a home run and three singles by D. 
Aulisio, a homer, triple and double by Jasionek, a triple by Leahy and a 
double by Joe Aulisio. Six hurlers faced the Millmen in the eighth when 
all runs were scored after two men were out and the bases clear. 

Vargnani hit a homer and single for Wentworth but charged with 
his second loss to the Millmen. 

COMMENTS 

We wonder why Jazzy Jasionek had such a hard time judging that 
high fly in the Becker game? 

Don't you love to see Ed Flynn circle under those short foul tips 
that no one ever catches? 

It is rumored that Coach Gourley is going to give Leahy a zero in 
C. Y. P. for every time that Bill socks one of those tremendous fouls in- 
to left. If those had been straight maybe Bill would have trimmed Dave 
Aulisio in the final batting averages, — MAYBE. 

Greenough's "one-and-a-half" over the spectator at the Alumni game 
would do credit to any gymnast even though the landing was a bit awk- 
ward, which only goes to prove that foul flies are elusive.

Dave Aulisio's .475 batting average was some hitting but he says 
its all in the spaghetti you eat. 

Larry Durfee, Al Ramsbotham, and Joe Aulisio showed up in great 
form during their first year out. All three crashed the ".300" class with 
the willow, Joe and Al also being speedy on the paths. 

Szynal's chatter at second during the course of a game automatically 
qualifies him as a leading candidate for the "National Amateur Hogcall- 
ing Championship". Our money is on Frank. 

We still think that Dick Lewis is faster on the base paths than 
Coach Gourley but would walk miles to see them race. 

For the perfect form picture, we present to you Leahy at third base 
(in action), but Durfee says there is no need to throw them to first in 
such a hurry. "Knobby" agrees and continues to burn them over to 
first. 

Well, we must get on to soccer, so Cheerio !

SOCCER 19^§ 

(SHORTLY after the opening of the school term the Soccer season got 
under way in preparation for a hard 13 game schedule. The boys acquit- 
ted themselves very credibly by winning nine, losing three, and tying one 
of the contests. 

Textile vs. Dean Academy 

Although minus the services of Al Ramsbotham, regular halfback, 
the Millmen got under way in grand style by trimming the Academy 
boys 5-0 in the season's curtain raiser. Norm Singleton, from his posi- 
tion at center half managed to lead the scoring for the day with two 
fine goals, being closely followed by Leahy, Kosiba, and Kosera who 
tallied one each. Mello and "Big Joe" Dias played stellar games at their 
half back posts. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

In the usual hard fought struggle staged by these two bitter rivals

neither team was able to triumph, with the final score being 1-1 ; it was, 
incidently, the fourth tie of a like score between the two outfits in their 
last five clashes. 

Barber scored for Voke shortly after the opening whistle when he 
nodded in a nice pass from Barkers. This ended the scoring in the first 
stanza but Mickey Riley tied up the count just after the intermission 
when he beat Sykes with a beautiful shot from about 20 yards out. Bar- 
kers missed a victory for Voke as he dubbed up a penalty try just before 
the end of the game. 

Textile vs. Tabor Academy 

The Millmen visited Marion and came away with their second win by 
a 4-2 score. Ed Kosiba and "Pilky" Pilkington gave Textile a 2-0 lead in 
the first half but Tabor tied the count in the third quarter. As the last 
canto got under way "Bucky" Greenough slipped a pass to Tref Soucy, 
in front of the net, and the latter converted it into the winning score 
although Kosiba put the clash on the well known ice with his second 
goal a few moments later. 

Textile vs. Cranston High School 

Without getting much opposition from the smaller high school lads, 
the Tex lads scored an easy 3-0 win for their third triumph of the sea- 
son. Stan Kozera gave the Millmen a 1-0 lead at the half which was in- 
creased to 3-0, after the exchange of ends, on goals by Riley and Kosiba, 
the latter's score coming from the penalty spot. Cranston could do little 
with the usual fine defense exhibited by Textile. 

Textile vs. Bridgewater Teachers College 

Capitalizing on breaks early in the contest the New Bedford lads 
built up a 2-0 lead before the end of the first half, and aided by some 
great work on the part of Goalie Szulik in the last quarter particularly, 
won their fourth victory. 

Mike Riley scored early from scrimmage when he, along with Green- 
ough, Kosiba, and Soucy, ganged up on the opposing fullbacks following 
a misskick by one of them. The short range gave the Teacher's goalie 
no chance. Kosiba's penalty followed in the second quarter to clinch the 
contest and end the scoring. 

Textile vs. Harvard Junior Varsity 

Getting unexpected opposition from the Boston team, Textile had to 
mine from behind in the closing moments to score a narrow 3-2 win.

1936 THE FABRICATOR 



"Big" Joe Dias and Norm Singleton combined their efforts to trim Harv- 
ard almost single-handed, the two being directly responsible for all three 
goals. Joe scored two, including the winning one which came from Sing- 
leton's excellent corner kick, and Norm tallied the other in a solo effort. 

Singleton starred throughout the afternoon for Textile on both of- 
fense and defense. 

Textile vs. Durfee Tech. 

Textile's arch rivals handed the Millmen their first defeat of the 
season at Fall River by a 1-0 score. The counter came just before the 
end of the game on a fine shot by Harrington, center forward, with 
Szulik having no chance to save the shot. 

Textile vs. Durfee Tech. 

A week later the New Bedford outfit, on their own field trounced 
the visiting outfit soundly, 3-0, to make up fully for their previous 1-0 
defeat by the Durfeeites. Riley, Singleton, and Fior (accidental) ac- 
counted for the goals. 

This was probably the best played game of the season on the part 
of our team with Singleton and Ramsbotham playing excellent defensive 
games. Mickey Riley played an excellent game offensively. 

Textile vs. Cranston High School 

Playing on Cranston's "two by four" field handicapped the visiting 
Textile aggregation no little bit and although the Millmen gained a 1-0 
lead at the intermission Cranston came right back in the second and 
quickly assumed a 2-1 advantage, while mixing things up considerably. 
That is where they made their mistake for the Millmen woke up to score 
three quick goals, completely stunning Cranston and just about nullify- 
ing the latter's offense. 

Eddie Kosiba scored three goals to net the scoring honors for the 
day. He tallied the first two for the Millmen with Dick Barry netting 
the deciding counter just before Kosiba's final score. 

It was the seventh win of the season for Textile. 

Textile vs. Durfee Tech. 

The Fall River jinx again went to work and Durfee triumphed by 
2-1 in the rubber game of the season's series. 

Greenough gave Textile a 1-0 lead shortly after the opening gong 
but Durfee tied things up midway through the first half. The score 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 

Page fifty-seven 



THEFABRICATOR 1936 



stood 1-1 until five minutes before the end when Bill Eagan poked one 
past Szulik from a scrimmage in front of the goal mouth. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

For the first and only time during the season Textile dropped their 
second consecutive game, this time to Voke, 3-0. It was the worst de- 
feat of the season. 

Barber, high scoring Voke center forward, lead the Green with two 
goals, one in each half. Hardman scored the third goal in the final half. 

Vocational had the best of the play and truly deserved to win. 

Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College 

Playing on a frozen surface and in freezing temperature, Textile 
broke a Fall River jinx of three years' standing by edging Thibodeau 1-0. 
The goal came from the boot of Bucky Greenough, with but a few min- 
utes left to play, as the result of k pass from Riley. The score insured 
the eighth Textile victory of the season. 

Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College 

A week later at Buttonwood the Millmen duplicated their first win 
over Thibodeau with Kosiba in the starring role on this occasion. After 
a scoreless first half, Eddie tallied the only goal of the struggle in the 
last half as he scored from close in following some nice dribbling. It 
was Ray Szulik's work between the uprights in the closing moments of 
play that kept the lead, however. He stopped shot after shot in a fine 
exhibition. 

This win was an appropriate ending to a successful soccer season 
which may possibly be the last in the history of the school if football is 
successfully reintroduced in the school next year. 

COMMENTS 
Prizes — Catcher's cage to Mickey Riley. The scrappy diminutive 
center forward made stopping the ball with one's face a regular if not 
popular pastime. If Mike doesn't want it, Soucy gets second choice. 

Stan Koczera — combination nose guard and handkerchief. In the 
Thibodeau game at Fall River, Stan's schnozzola looked like a red traffic 
light. 

Bucky Greenough — face cloth, for the black-and-white mud pack re- 
ceived in the Voke game.

"Little Joe" Dias — a letter for soccer and a muffler. 

Ed Kosiba (high scorer) — a tee to set 'em up on plus a little more 
help on the left wing. 

Dave Aulisio — a couple of unscored goals. 

Bill Leahy — a riot squad for the games in Fall River. 

"Joe" Mello — Norm Singleton's drive. 

Al Ramsbotham — a pair of brand new soccer shoes. Al couldn't get 
any from school and played in a pair of heavy army shoes a great deal 
of the time which slowed up the speedy halfback considerably. 

"Big Joe" Dias — a left foot like Leahy's with Kosiba's accuracy. 

Dick Barry — "Thanks" from Greenough for the use of your shoes. 

Norm Singleton — Congratulations for being the outstanding player. 

TEAM — more opposition like Dean and more trips to the same. 

Aulisio, Barry, Leahy, Soucy, Szulik, and Greenough played their last 
game for Textile. They will be graduated in June. Dave, Bill, and Ray 
have been regulars for three years. 

And lastly we say, "Good work" to Coach Cleveland '33, who did a 
good job with the squad.

Textile vs. Alumni 

The Millmen supposedly with some of the best material in years, in- 
cluding a veteran starting line upon hand, ran rampant over the grads 
to open the season with a 39-18 victory. 

Although Joe Aulisio did not start the game for the school team, he 
dropped in eleven points to lead the scorers for the night. Ed Kosiba, Al 
Ramsbotham, and Dave Aulisio each tallied eight points which seems to 
point to a combination this season. 

The Alumni tried hard but simply could not give the well conditioned 
Varsity any serious trouble. 

The Textile Seconds trimmed the Alumni Seconds 29-14. 

Textile vs. Rhode Island College of Education 

For the second straight game the Millmen were led by the younger 
Aulisio who did some shooting that was bordered on the sensational 
scored twelve points in the last two quarters and fourteen in the entire 
contest. Ramsbotham was close behind with nine points.

Incidently, after being held to eleven points in the first half by the 
college boys, Textile opened up and scored a 35-21 win. 

The second team won its second straight by trimming the Westing- 
house Reserves 23-8. 

Textile vs. Durfee Textile 

Our lads made it three in a row when they traveled to Fall River 
to give Durfee Textile a nice 34-23 trimming. Dave Aulisio ran wild 
with nineteen points from his guard position, while Ed Kosiba helped out 
considerably with eleven counters. 

Surprisingly enough, Al Ramsbotham and Joe Aulisio failed to tally 
a point during the entire evening. 

The New Bedfordites held only a 15-12 lead at the intermission but 
piled up the points at the last periods. The New Bedford Textile Seconds 
won 37-4. 

Textile vs. Naval Training Station 

The Sailors handed the Tex lads their first defeat of the season to 
the tune of 36-22. This was mostly due to a 14-3 lead assumed by the 
Newporters at the end of the first quarter. Textile never was able to 
overcome that margin and although they outscored the home team in the 
second half it was all in vain. 

Strange to the Newport floor and poor in their shooting cost Tex- 
tile the game although this all went toward allowing their opponents to 
outplay them. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

Back on their home floor Textile polished off the Vokes in a 49-18 
massacre. Dave Aulisio with eighteen points, Ed George with fifteen, 
and Ed Kosiba with thirteen lead the Millmen in their scoring spree. 

Coach Szulik, who had been having considerable trouble finding a 
consistent center, was given some encouragement by the performance of 
George. 

The seconds won again 27-24. 

Textile vs. Becker College 

Expecting some of the best opposition of the schedule the Textilites 
played excellent basketball to turn back the highly touted visitors by a 
40-23 score. 

The Millmen played the best game displayed by them so far this 
year and, with George shooting some great baskets from his guard posi- 
tion, to lead the scorers with thirteen points, assumed a 24-10 lead at the 
half and were never headed. Samko, Worcester center, who scored 4.4 
points against Textile in two games was well taken care of by Szulik at 

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 

Page sixty-one 



THEFABRICATOR 1936 

the center. In fact all the Millmen were at their top form and simply 
unbeatable. Dave and Joe Aulisio shared seventeen points between them, 
Dave getting the extra one. 

The Textile seconds won their fifth straight by edging the High Hat- 
ters 25-24 in a ragged game. Jack Ryan scored the winning basket with 
only three seconds left to play. 

Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College 

Textile scored its sixth victory of the season by squelching the Thi- 
bodeau Business College five by a 54-26 score. 

Szulik, Ryan, and Dave Aulisio each tallied ten points while Joe 
Aulisio led the pack with eleven counters, as the Millmen assumed a 25-9 
half time lead. The score at the end of the opening session was 11-9 but 
the Fall River lads were held scoreless in the second period by some great 
guarding by the Textile. 

The Textile Seconds defeated the Murphy Club Reserves 31-13 in the 
preliminary for their sixth win. 

Textile vs. Naval Training Station 

In one of the best games of the schedule thus far Textile avenged its 
only defeat by sinking the navy boys 39-23. 

Dave Aulisio took the scoring honors with sixteen points but Kosiba 
and George stood out fully as much for the home by virtue of their great 
games at the guard positions while dropping in nine points apiece at the 
same time. 

Textile jumped into a 9-5 lead at the opening quarter and was never 
headed as the Sailors failed to show the same brand of shooting as on their 
own floor. 

The local Seconds beat the Westport Indies 26-15 in the opener. 

Textile vs. Holy Family 

After displaying some great basketball in the previous games the 
Millmen bagged down in no uncertain manner to barely edge the high 
school boys 33-28 in a last period rally. The score was tied with only six 
minutes to play but the Aulisio brothers dropped in baskets to pull the 
contest out of the fire. 

Textile led all the way into the final canto when the hard working 
Parochials took advantage of considerable lax play on the part of Textile 
to suddenly forge into a tie for the lead. The Millmen immediately 
got panicky and along with the dogged play of Holy Family, just man- 
aged to nose out their eighth win. 

Dave Aulisio caged thirteen points to take the evening's honors.

Textile vs. Bryant College 

The crack Providence business college five handed the New Bedford- 
ites their second defeat of the season as Textile, after coming to within 
two points of a tie score late in the third stanza, failed to cope with the 
last period surge of the home forces and dropped a 27-19 verdict. 

Textile was behind 16-2 at one time in the second period and this 
disadvantage proved too big a one to overcome. Ray Szulik's six points 
was high for his team as Textile suffered its smallest scoring night of 
its entire schedule. 

Textile vs. Vocational 

Scoring ten points in each of the last three periods Textile combined 
them with a 6-4 first quarter lead to score a 36-20 triumph over Voke, 
to repeat an earlier season win. 

Although the home team was off in its shooting, Vocational never 
stood a chance against their more experienced foes. The Textile scor- 
ing was well divided and ranged from D. Aulisio's ten points down Ryan's 
sole foul basket, with everybody figuring in the point getting. 

It was the Textile varsity's ninth win. 

In the preliminary game the Textile Seconds also repeated their first 
win over the Green seconds, meanwhile scoring their ninth victory. The 
final score was 33-27. 

Textile vs. Thibodeau's Business College 

Our lads made it ten wins and two defeats for the season by travel- 
ing to the Fall River Y. M. C. A. and trimming the Thibodeau five of 
that city by a 41-34 score. 

Textile was led to victory by the free scoring ways of George, Kos- 
iba, and Dave Aulisio who scored eight, twelve, and fifteen points re- 
spectively. 

The first was nip and tuck as Textile emerged out in front by 22-21. 
At the end of the third period the score was 30-29 still in favor of the 
visitors but in the final session the New Bedford team outscored their 
rivals by six counters to clinch the contest. 

Textile vs. Durfee Textile 

D. Aulisio's seventeen points gave New Bedford its second win in as 
many nights as Textile trimmed its Durfee rival 29-14 on the New Bed- 
ford gym floor. It was Durfee's second defeat of the season at the local's 
hands. 

Although there was not a great deal of scoring Durfee was never 
in sight of its opponents and trailed 13-3 at half time. 

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL

THE F A B R I C ATOR 193 6 



The local Seconds outscored the Durfee Reserves to register their 
tenth straight win. 

Textile vs. Dean Academy 

Textile dropped its third game of the season by losing to the Acad- 
emy boys 33-28 in a close contest that' was a battle right up to the final 
whistle. 

The Millmen led at the first quarter 12-4, and 17-15 at the half but 
faded after the intermission to lose the game. The team played a credit- 
able brand of ball but failure to make good its foul shots was one of the 
main reasons for the loss. Dean failed to sink as many field goals but 
dropped in too many free throws from a Textile viewpoint, and won out. 

Textile vs. Becker 

The Millmen journeyed to Worcester and received a thorough beat- 
ing at the hands of the State boys led by Samko. The latter, Becker's 
lanky center, scored seventeen points which totalled along side his mates' 
frequent scores accounted for the 51-30 Textile loss. It was the worst 
loss of the year. 

D. Aulisio played a fine game for the visitors and scored eleven 
points up to the time he was banished in the fourth quarter. 

Textile vs. Rhode Island State College of Education 

With 32 consecutive past half points featuring Textile's most over- 
whelming success of the season, the Millmen trounced the Providence 
outfit by the large margin of a 64-22 score. 

Dave Aulisio gained scoring honors by virtue of his 17 points and 
was ably helped out by the remaining nine Textile players who all fig- 
ured in the scoring. Ramsbotham was second highest scorer with nine 
points. 

The Millmen were never in danger and led from the outset. 

Textile vs. Bryant College 

Defeated in the first battle at Providence, Textile gained one of its 
sweetest revenges of the season by edging the fast College five 28-23 in 
a close scrap that kept a home crowd thrilled throughout. 

The quarter scores attest to a close game and Textile's margin at 
the finish was its largest of the conflict. Textile led at the initial canto 
9-8 and 18-14 at the half. In the third session Bryant forged to within 
one point, 20-19 and for a while in the final period tied the score at 22-22 
but Textile rallied to win. 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL

Kosiba and Ryan at guard starred for the Millmen both on the of- 
fense and defense while Aulisio contributed twelve points to his team's 
cause. 

Textile vs. Holy Family High 

Al Ramsbotham conducted Textile's fine season to a victorious end 
by snapping out of a scoring slump with thirteen points. Textile beat 
the high school lads 32-15 for its fourteenth win as against four defeats. 

FOOTNOTES 
Dave Aulisio ended the season with 189 points with Ed Kosiba in 
runnerup position with 97 points to his credit. This was remarkable in 
that Ed played the entire season at guard; his 25 foul baskets also led 
in that department. 

When Mike Riley took a shot at his own basket in the Voke game, 
which, incidentally was won by the Textile Seconds with three points lee- 
way, he certainly let himself in for a lot of kidding. Mike's good nature 
made everything all right though, and the diminutive forward was round- 
ly cheered every time he scored a point. 

Russ Carroll and Bucky Greenough, who took care of Textile's scor- 
ing and publicity respectively got so tired of hearing Larry Durfee tell- 
ing what a clean player he was that they induced Ross Langlois to expell 
the reserve guard from the Holy Family game and was Larry peeved — 
when he took a look on the reserve bench. 

When Vera Hillman went out on four fouls in the final game of the 
season the second team contest had to be halted until another member of 
Textile's nonchalant reserves was separated from the group horseplaying 
in the locker room and put into service. 

The Seconds took their basketball and their pleasure together but 
their undefeated record shows that the boys were plugging for all they 
were worth while in the game. 

At the same time, the Varsity gathered itself one of the finest rec- 
ords of recent teams representing the school as it went through the season 
undefeated on its home floor. All the boys showed fine spirit and played 
fine ball, fully deserving the excellent opinions expressed in their behalf. 

The final records show : won 14, lost 4. And no team on the list de- 
feated Textile twice.

TENNIS 19$<§ 

HU.NDER the tutelage of Coach Malcolm H. Richardson the tennis as- 
pirants enjoyed their season immensely although they managed to win 
only four of their matches. Two of these wins came in the last four 
matches, however, as the boys showed some very good tennis. Wins over 
Durfee Textile and New Bedford High were the highlights of the season. 
The latter win was especially sweet as it revenged a 6-0 defeat. 

The team composed of Al Tripp, Ralph Clark, Joe Crowley, Al Frost, 
Norm Donninger, Mark Knowlton, and Elmer Diggle.

JOKE*' 



These jokes have worried so, 

The many whom I know, 
That I often paced to and fro, 

Whether to print these, yes or no — 
But here goes: 

THINGS I NEVER KNOODLE NOW 

As Ripley would say, "Believe It Or 
Not," Parkinson once had a date. 

Kestenbaum is guilty of murder — he 
kills the English language. 

Georgie Mitchell isn't really conceited. 

Beck has been awake. 

"Andy" Adams is the class inventor. 

Barry is the best cymbal player around 
this part of the country. 

A cut in the basketball squad means 
Manager Durfee's cut. 

If you lose your glasses you cannot 
give a "Steam" lecture. 

That Textile is a "Rest Home". 

''Always A Good Sweetheart" was 
written by our Krumholz, alias "Trues- 
dale". n 

Adams is Leap Year's prize winner. 
Doesn't drink, swear or chew. Girls — grab 
him while the grabbing is good. 

That the Senior Chem class might all 
have jail records (if Doc Weymouth had 
his own way). 

"Little Jack" Brindley's rates for 
haunting people are very reasonable. 

That Dave Aulisio is taking corres- 
pondence lessons on "On How to Love". 

The class motto is "SOBER UP". 

That from reports Babe Rioux isn't 
half the Romeo he thinks he is. 

Parkins would like to, if he could. 

That Harrison and Flynn are going over 
to Russia with the rest of the "REDS." 

The Middleboro gals are the best: ask 
Goodell. 

That "Herky" Greenough is the "Si- 
lent Lover". His parents don't even sus- 
pect him. 

Szulik has two weaknesses, Elsie and 
B r. 

That Leahy and Mr. Richardson have 
something in common. 

Pilkington will be grey haired in three 
years if he doesn't stop being a "Worry 
Wart". 

Ruffley is known far and wide for his 
dry humor and wit. 

That Lipsitt will inarch down the 
middle aisle in the near future. Good 
luck! 

Begin will always have a blonde wait- 
ing for him in years to come. We hope! 

That Soucy's resemblance to the new 
King of England makes him, a hit with 
the girls. 



Mr. Acomb: (To the General boys), 
"Do you know that Rothkopf is the most 
important member of the class?" 
Leahy: "How's that, Mr. Acomb?" 
Mr. Acomb: "Aye, it's like this lads; 
he ±alks so loud when he's asleep that 
he keeps the rest of you fellows awake." 

* ♦ ♦ 

Dave: "Hardy is seldom seen in the 
Taverns." 

Flynn: "How come,' he goes to them 
several nights a week." 

Dave: "Yes, but he's usually under the 
table where you can't see him." 
•j* <£• ♦!* 

Szulik: "Liquor and girls are a lot 
like you." 

Rioux: "How so?" 

Szulik: "You can't hold either." 

♦ ♦ * 

Prof. Crompton: "Mr. Pilkington, will 
you tell me why you look at the clock so 
often?" 

Pilky (suavely): "Yes sir. I was afraid 
you wouldn't have time to finish your 
interesting lecture. 

* ♦ * 

Barry: "So Parkinson lost his mind, 
you say?" 

Giguere: "Sure he did. Went crazy 
trying to find the shady side of Purchase 
street at noon." 

♦ ♦ * 

CURSES 

Harrison: "Say, what's this I hear 
about you being asleep at the switch last 
night?" 

Greenough: "It's right, darn it. I was 
asleep when the blonde across the street 
switched from her negligee to her pa- 
jamas." 



>:♦ ♦» ♦:♦ 



Rioux (kidding a bit): "I've only ten 
cents to my name, honey. Do you think 
we can have a big evening on a dime?" 

Edith: "No, my kid brother always in- 
sists on a quarter." 

•!♦ ♦> * 

Deptula: "Why did she suddenly haul 
off and slap your face?" 

Begin: "Aw, she went crazy with the 
heat." 

Deptula: "Well, she seemed very cool." 

Begin: "Yeah, but I was hot." 

•:♦ ♦ ♦:♦ 

Alice: "I'll bet Prof. Fawcett is like an 
old wolf when he comies to class after 
quarrelling with his wife." 

Madeline: "Oh, yes, he hugs me tighter 
than ever."

To the General Class 

If a picker can pick and a mule spin, 
Then why can't a loom illuminate ? 
If a roving frame roves and a ribbon 
laps, 
Can a spooler fool with a bunch of 
jacks ? 
If a weaver weaves with a bunch of 
doups, 
Can an instructor instruct a crowd of 
loots ? 
If a comber combs and a winder winds, 
Will you tell me why a folder binds ? 
If a reeler reels when two-thirds full, 
Is that any reason why I'm full of 
bull? 
All this nonsense is for the sake of re- 
flection 
And I hope for our book it finds not 
rejection. 

Strange as it seems, many a girl who's 
ripe for love is still awfully green about 
it.

that you have the safest tires you can buy. Tests by a 
leading university show that Firestone High Speed 
Tires will stop a car from 15% to 25% quicker than

Gum-Dipping makes the cord body more flexible, 
tougher and stronger. Leading race drivers, who know 
tires, will not risk their lives on any other make. 

Few car owners fully realize the danger in 
driving on unsafe tire's at today's high speeds. 
Last year 43,000 accidents were caused by .?*!■ 
blowouts, punctures and skidding. Don't take ^ / 
chances! Equip your car with Firestone ■** / / 
High Speed Gum-Dipped Tires — the 
safest tires ever built — and specify 
them for your new car.
